Basically, ALLIED FORCES, is a team of international “Progressive Humans” (people with powers) that fight the Nazi’s during WWII. They get called in by their “handler”, a Brigadier General in the British Army, to go on a mission into Poland after the Nazi’s captured it in September, 1939.

Now, one of the things that always made me a little crazy about comic book, WWII era, Super teams, is that they always have the same line-up. There’s usually 3 to 6 Americans, and a Brit. or two. Which, considering the war was all over Europe, and The U.S. didn’t join in until the very end of 1941, seems a bit odd. Does no one in Europe have powers in these comics?

So, I went more international with a starting lineup pulled from some of the big-gun Allies at the time…

ORZEL BIALY, Poland’s high flying White Eagle, with the nation’s coat of arms on his chest, refuses to give up, even when the Nazi’s have him outgunned and outmanned.

THE GREAT BRITON, (I do so love word-play) is the team leader. Wielding the magic of Excalibur, The Great Briton is one of the most powerful Progressive Humans on Earth…but, the further away from The British Isles he goes, the faster his powers fade.

LE COC GAULOIS, is the feisty French fighter whom quickly became one of my favorites to write. With preternatural speed and agility, and dressed in the French colors of Red, White, and Blue, he flashes his deadly “spurs” (twin daggers) and bears the symbol of France’s unofficial national bird.

THE DOOMSTER, is a concept my friend, Vinnie Bartilucci, gave me. A Doomster, or Breitheamh, is an ancient Scottish Judge, and when this unstoppable highlander judges you…watch out.

THE RED ENSIGN. Draped in one of Canada’s historic flags, The Red Ensign can grow to sixteen feet. A towering symbol of her country, she helps bring the Nazis down to size!

THE BOMBER is the Aussie of the group, and a former pugilist who had to quit the sport when his powers kicked in. His punches are explosive, LITERALLY!

In future stories, we plan on bringing in other Allied Powers, like Greece, China, and of course, The Soviet Union and the U.S.A. I kid you not, I’ve learned more history researching this comic than I ever did in school, and I’ve got a master’s Degree!

Now, the bad guys have powers too, and first among them is DER WEHRMACHT ADLER, The Nazi Warfare Eagle. He’s powerful, cold, cunning, and totally believes in his cause, which makes him as deadly as they come.

There are few other surprise up the Nazi’s sleeves, but I don’t want to give it all away.

The book is drawn by my friend , Joe Kuzma, who has this awesome style and maddening eye for detail. And we both really want to bring forth the best version of ALLIED FORCES that we can.

Money raised through KICKSTARTER will go towards paying for the supplies, getting the pages colored, getting our cover done by the awesomely talented, KARL MOLINE (Route 666, Buffy, Loners, and R.E.B.E.L.S. Annual), printing, and advertising.

With your help, the noble heroes of the ALLIED FORCES can charge off to war, to help keep the world safe. And in return for your help and generosity, we’ve got some special offers for you, including a few for any of our retailer friends who’d like to help.
